Ever wonder how Netflix creates browse categories like “Critically Acclaimed Documentaries,” “Exciting World War II Action Movies,” or “Quirky British Comedies Featuring a Strong Female Lead”?

As part of the Enhanced Content Collections team, you will work with both editorial metadata and algorithmic/formulaic systems in order to create and maintain over 100,000 unique rows, genres, browse galleries, and other content categories that help 100 million global users discover content they’ll love. These collections leverage deep-level title metadata to support not only content merchandising, but also support broader areas of the company, including maturity ratings, social campaigns, user messaging, data analysis, and operations.

The right candidate for this role will combine his or her skills in taxonomy and information science with an encyclopedic knowledge of movies and TV shows. In order to create collections, you will use a set of proprietary tools and code, and while an engineering background is not a prerequisite, experience with complex rulesets, database queries, and back-end systems is a plus.
